It’s time to Rally! Back for its FIFTH year, we are gearing up for the Moots-Colorado Ranch Rally 2018. Limited to 200 riders we are planing for a great day of riding and raising money for the COMMUNITY AG ALLIANCE of Steamboat. This fundraiser ride is an amazing way to see the roads less traveled around Steamboat, meet some new friends and challenge yourself along the way. Yes, we have opened this awesome day up to just a few more people so we don’t leave anyone out. This event sells out each year, so grab your spot now!

Where the pavement ends and the fun begins. Now in its fifth year, the Moots Colorado Ranch Rally is a 50 mile bicycle ride held on the gravel and dirt roads around Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Just 5 miles of the route are on pavement, the other 45 miles feature rural dirt and gravel roads that connect area historical ranches and farms. You will pass by historic Elk Mountain Cemetery, climb up to Mystic, touch the Wolf Mountain area and descend down Deep Creek before tackling the rolling hills of County Road 52E then finish it off with a small climb over Fly Gulch. Enjoy a stunning day on the bike on the very roads we test and develop our bikes.

The event starts and finishes at Moots World Headquarters. This is a non-timed, non-competitive ride. You can ride at your own pace or that of the group around you. There are no awards other than seeing the amazing countryside around Steamboat Springs, meeting some great people along the way and our raffle at the evening social.

We meet at Moots the day of the event for coffee, pastries and conversations before we roll off for 50 miles of beautiful country side, highlighted by area ranches. As you finish off the loop we stop at the Rocking-C-Bar Ranch for lunch with friends. **After lunch you will need to ride back to town, there are no shuttles available.** That evening we meet back up at the Moots building for factory tours, locally made “adult beverages”, tacos and the drawing for a MOOTS frame.

With a little luck you could ride away with a Moots ROUTT 45 frame from our raffle.

When you enter the event you will also be entered into the drawing for a MOOTS ROUTT 45 frame. (choice of 7 stock frame sizes, retail value of $3800.00) Moots is partnering and supporting the Community Agriculture Alliance (CAA) to showcase the importance of the local ranches in our area. All proceeds from the event will go to CAA.
